There are a lot of books I’d like to read in 2018, but I’ve narrowed them down to thirteen to share with you. Before I tell you which they are, a few disclaimers:
- This isn’t a Top 13; the books are in no particular order.
- While some of these books are coming out this year (I’ve mentioned which), there are some that are older.
- Some of the new releases don’t have covers, titles or synopsis yet. In the case of the unknown titles, I’ll just write which series the book is from and the number it’s supposed to be; as for the About (synopsis), I’ll just explain what the series is about.
- I’ve divided the books in the following categories: Fiction Novels (8), Guides (3), and Manga/Graphic Novels (2).
Let’s start with…

I’ve reviewed a total of thirty-five novels and short stories in 2017 – some of them came out that year, some are a bit older – and today I’m going to share my eight favorites with you. They are in the order of which I’ve posted their reviews. That’s why we are starting with…

Something is drawing seventeen-year-old Jesse Bryce toward the community of Pagans who live in “the village,” just outside his rural Oklahoma town. Maybe it’s that he has a crush on Griffin Holyoke, a tall, dark-haired boy with a tree tattooed all up his back. Or maybe it’s that the Pagans accept Jesse for who he is, unlike his family—or his church, where he hears that being gay is a sin Continue reading
It’s the first Sunday of the month, so here’s my To Review list. I have not one, not two, but FOUR books to talk with you about this December!
Three are Fiction (two novels and a short story), and one is a guide. So, which are they?

Carrie’s husband, Tommy, is distant and distracted even as he does his best to care for Boo’s human siblings, especially baby Finn Continue reading
In case you haven’t figured it out by all the reviews I post on this blog: I love reading.
Shocker, I know.
If I were to let myself go and buy every book I wanted, I’d be broke in a week, probably even sooner. However, there are some books I desire more than others and since I think they’d be amazing reads, I decided to share them with you. This list is in no particular order and I tried to go for a bit of diversity so you’ll see three Fiction novels, a manga and a writing guide here, all of them by different authors.
Let’s start with the Fiction novels Continue reading
